This evening's broadcast is a "Thank you!" to our Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ. As many of you know, we have been very deeply involved in research and preparation of scripts and an accompanying guidebook for our upcoming video class: "Bill W., Dr. Bob, and the Cure of Alcoholism: The Rest of the Story." We haven't forgotten prayer or God's promises or the support of friends. In fact, the mail has been filled with support this month coming from an Episcopal priest, a physician, a Rhode Island well-wisher, a Harvard professor, a zealous alcohol and drug counselor (a major donor), and several Christian churches who know what we do, are recovery oriented, and think well of Christian recovery efforts.
As today arrived along with another welcome check, we decided to mention to our listeners the kind of recovery support we are receiving from some named benefactor sources. And shortly follow up with a number of programs that have also helped us in our wor. We do this because, when we trust God, seek and ask His wisdom, the source of the abundance is reliable, welcome, and the cause for rejoicing.
So join us this evening in thanking the churches and pastors and leaders we mention. There are many more. But these deserve special mention right now.
What if recovery wasn’t about abstinence or returning to a former state? What if true recovery was about acknowledging and reclaiming so much of you that addiction and “mental illness” couldn’t exist? What if you could move forward to a space where you had real choice and did not have to be the effect of anyone or anything? Despite what you might have been told – you can!

The power of choice, demonstrating patience and not choosing what looks better than it really is- all virtues in recovery. As always, miracles will be shared.
Todays encouragement group inspires people to fall in love with recovery.
